Jacqueline Laurita will be fired from the Real Housewives of New Jersey if she fails to appear at Melissa Gorga's fashion show in New Jersey on Wednesday night, which is being billed as an all-cast event, requiring all of the reality stars to appear.
After almost getting into a physical fight with costar, Robyn Levy, during the cast trip to Vermont several weeks ago, and getting into a bitter dispute with Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice, a production source tells In Touch, "Jacqueline thinks she can just call the shots regarding fulfilling filming requirements. Melissa's fashion show will be the grand finale event for the upcoming season of RHONJ and all of the ladies will be there. Since the fallout of the trip to Vermont, Jacqueline has bailed on filming with Robyn, Teresa and Melissa.”

“Bravo obviously wants and needs Jacqueline to be there on Wednesday night because it will be the first time everyone will be together since the trip to Vermont. By not showing up, Jacqueline will jeopardize not having those moments on camera. Viewers will definitely want to see the aftermath and how Jacqueline handles herself," the source told In Touch Weekly.
The cast trip to Vermont was indeed "explosive, and viewers are going to be stunned at what went down. It wasn't as shocking as Teresa infamously flipping the table, but ranks up there as very, very memorable. The season started out rather slow and boring, but really picked up towards the end," the source added.
The fashion show is being held at Macaluso's in Hawthorne, N.J. on March 30 at 6:00 pm. The event is open to the public, but requires a ticket purchase with prices ranging from $90 to $395. Proceeds of the benefit will Deborah Hospital Foundation.
The upcoming season of RHONJ is expected to premiere on Bravo early this summer.
